Marlene Julien is a Dr Bike in more ways than one: she is a hospital doctor and is also a keen cyclist who volunteers as a Trax Bike Club leader in her spare time - encouraging women to cycle and learn how to fix their bikes.
Marlene loves leisure cycling but she rode her bike alone until spring 2011. The turning point came when she joined Trax off-road cycling club as the Welfare Officer, encouraged by Daniel Mintz who was Chairman.
I was inspired by the passion and example of the Trax team to bring the joy of cycling to more people. It is important that everyone can take part, so we secured Smarter Travel funding for bikes which can be borrowed by riders who don’t have their own.”
